Question about Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop Comfort Edition Keyboard

Microsoft wireless optical desktop 2000 - keyboard and mouse

I have a weird problem with my keyboard and now starting with my mouse.
The keyboard works fine for a while, but usually once a day or so, I am having to restart the computer because the typing is very, very slow. There is a delay between typing the letter and the letter showing up on the screen. Once I restart, it works OK. I had no problem with the mouse until last night when it started to miss clicks. I have to click 2-8 times before it finally connects.
I've tried pressing the buttons on the receiver and on the keyboard and mouse. I've tried the batteries. The mouse problem did not get better after restarting computer but the keyboard gets better.
Now, I bought this set, had this problem, returned it and bought the same one again, thinking I had just gotten a bad box. But same exact problem.
I'm worried it's the computer, but there are no other problems and this only started when I bought the new keyboard/mouse.

    The computer and monitor are on the same desk with the keyboard and mouse, and the receiver sits on the same workspace as the keyboard. The desk is about 3-5 ft from a tv and cable box.

    where exactly are you using the mouse/keyboard, and where is the computer and monitor?

    are you infront of TV radio or something else.

There are a number of things that may be causing your problem.

The first thing I would check would be the batteries, with these units having a wireless connection if the batteries become weak they will transmit a weaker signal and thus make it harder for the unit to read. Battery life is variable depending on how often you use your keyboard and mouse, and how far away from the transmitter the keyboard and mouse sit.

Also because the units are wireless there may be interference coming from other wireless devices in your household. Some possible guilty devices maybe cordless phones, Wifi adapters, and even some remotes.

Also Have you installed the intellitype and Intellipoint software for your Mouse & Keyboard. If so you can use it to check your battery life/ signal strenth and set you mouse sensitivity and type repeat rate.

On the bottom of your keyboard & Mouse and on the top of the wireless transponder there are reset buttons. Pushing the transponder 1st and then either or both the mouse and keyboards buttons should resysnc them without the need for a reboot.

Hope this helps
Dave

Can I use a new MS wireless mouse to replace my existing MS wireless mouse. Currently my mouse and keyboard connect together on the same wireless USB device. Could the new mouse be detected and be used...


I suppose there is a reset button on the keyboard or the software provided so I suppose it could be possible, I don't know.
I use a Microsoft Wired Keyboard...
But Best of luck.

Wireless Optical Desktop 2000 keyboard problem


Did you install any software that came on a CD with the devices or did you just plug them in and let Windows try to download or install a driver automatically?

If you have not done so, I would install driver software from the CD it came with and make sure there is not any trick in the instructions to get it working correctly. Also did you check for a sync button on the keyboard anywhere? There could be a button you have to press on that as well as the mouse to get them working.
